The DMA presents Willie Doherty: Requisite Distance, an exhibition of works by one of the most important artists to emerge from Northern Ireland in the past three decades, and a two-time nominee for the Tate’s Turner Prize. Described by the New York Times as “one of those little gems of a show," Requisite Distance "brings together for the first time Doherty’s Ghost Story—a tensely beautiful fifteen-minute media work based on landscape and memory, recently acquired for the DMA’s collections—and a selection of eleven powerful photographs of the Irish and Northern Irish landscape from the 1990s."
